Not to jinx it, but by checking his stats page, two things are obvious.

He has a ridiculous number of red cards, surely the PL refs (Dean, Atkinson, Oliver, Taylor etc..) will love dashing their cards on tough challenges he will make.

But on the other side, he is tough as a horse.
In a period of 7 years with Atletico, he was sidelined for a total of only 3 weeks

I remember one guy named Patrick Vieira, is it him?

Oh then I guess Messi isn't technical either guys because he only had a 67.3% dribble success rate last season while Partey had 81.8%.

It's not because they're in totally different positions or anything...
Just saying, also my stats were wrong. It's actually 72 dribbles completed.

""He was a very attractive player to them because he was different for his age," says Baños. "He was a very disciplined player, as he is now, and he was very grateful and respectful too.

"I always remember that every day after training, he would shake your hand and thank you for the session and the advice you had given him. He has always been a very good player to have in the dressing room.""

---

"That eye for goal would become a feature of Partey's game - "he now scores six or seven times per season, which is great for someone who starts the build-up play and operates in front of the defence," notes Baños..."

---

""He's a boy who understands football well," reflected former Almeria manager Sergi Barjuan in a recent interview with El País. "I used him as an attacking midfielder, a central midfield and even a centre-back.""

---

""I think the thing he has improved most in recent years is his final pass," says Baños. "He is not just a defensive midfielder. He is now a more adventurous player, with freedom in his movements and scoring ability."

Oltra sums it up succinctly: "He's a boy who does everything well.""

---

"It's little wonder Simeone has come to value him so highly. "Thomas is an extraordinary player," he said last year.

More recently, the Atletico boss added Partey is good enough to play for "any of the best teams in Europe". "Thomas is the one who best understands his position," he said. "The transition from defence to attack, shooting, scoring, providing assists and playing passes between the lines.""

---

""I'd seen him play for Atletico but I didn't realise how good he is," said Kieran Trippier, who joined the club from Tottenham last year, during a recent appearance on The Beautiful Game podcast. "He's unbelievable, his physicality, how he breaks up play. Technically he's got everything. I don't think he would have a problem with the Premier League."

It's a view shared by Baños, who admits he would be happy to see him join Arsenal having also worked as a scout for the Gunners.

"I have always said that he is a perfect player for the Bundesliga or the Premier League because of his style of play," he says. "He is a player who is ready and well-suited to succeed at a club like Arsenal.""

Looking at those stats I can only see one red card for two bookings against Real Madrid. Likely he was suspended a lot for the amount of yellow cards though.

I don't hope that's true. Would be crazy to upgrade his salary from £70k to £260k a week.

How is that crazy? He has clearly been underpaid for years now. He is a top 10 midfielder in the world. Very versatile, durable and still in his prime. Wages shouldn't matter to the fans, so long as the player puts in great performances that elevate the team.

With Gabriel and Partey we finally have players in our squad that make our opponents look the other way in the tunnel. Intimidation fc.

Can't wait to see butchers from Burnley bounce off these guys.

I can't see a single straight red card, and only one double yellow from 2 years ago.

Yellow cards are natural for the role he plays, it's good to break up counters sometimes.

Genuinely in tears, with Arteta’s organizational talent + recruitment to suit him we will not be bullied anymore.
